Backstory: Buzzfeed quizzes are my nightly de-stressor lol. They are created by some community members and some staff. I noticed that the two most recent Harry Potter themed quizzes, one from yesterday and one from today, both are lacking the standard "jk is bad give trans people money" hypocritical disclaimer.

As always, money talks lol. I assume these quizzes are making them a lot in ad revenue and they couldn't even pretend to care anymore....thoughts? Wonder if they'll put it back now that someone has noticed 😱

Maybe the hypocrisy was pointed out to them that they are making money off something they are supposedly against

It’s ridiculous. If you really believe it it is hateful and causes people to “literally” die, then boycott it for real, don’t use it as click bait. These clowns don’t even have the courage of their convictions.

What people fail to realise when they say “separate art from artist” and encourage people to stay in a fandom without supporting the creator, is that they are still promoting the author, giving free advertising, keeping the creation alive, in turn leading to more book/movie/merch sales. Do they convince themselves JKR was a vessel for a story that happened to pass through her or something?
